This book brings to light some of the greatest footballing heroes' from the early days of the game, up to the Second World War. Many modern day supporters like to discover about the past decades of football, and the players who were born to become the first favourites, and what they achieved in their careers. What were the tactics employed by these erstwhile footballers, their sporting apparel and how they viewed the beginning of the most followed game; not only in the United Kingdom but across the whole world. Sporting beards and moustache's, players such as the colourful Lord Arthur Fitzgerald Kinnard with his long red beard trailing in the breeze, was conspicuous where the fray was thickest. He was typical of the early gentleman player, but rather larger than life. Compare him with the popular Tommy Lawton who had all the attributes of a more modern day centre-forward. From the purely amateur stars at the very beginning of the game this publication compares these past masters with the professional footballers who took over the game as the 1940's approached.
